      Domestic stock markets climbed to record highs on the first full session of Samvat 2077, tracking strength in global equities as investors cheered the news of another promising coronavirus vaccine and optimism around world recovery. The S&P BSE Sensex index jumped 523.18 points - or 1.20 per cent - to touch 44,161.16 during the session, and the broader NSE Nifty 50 benchmark climbed up 153.80 points to 12,934.05 -- both all-time highs. Gains in banking, financial services and metal shares supported the markets, however losses in select IT, pharma and energy shares limited the upside.

      The Sensex ended 314.73 points - or 0.72 per cent - higher at 43,952.71, and the Nifty settled at 12,874.20, up 93.95 points - or 0.74 per cent - from its previous close -- both record closing highs.
